RARE matching pair of antique Japanese Imari Tokkuri - Sake bottles from the Meiji period (1868 - 1912). Graduated square walls rise to domed plateaus which culminate in delicate bottle necks. Skillfully hand-painted with Imari embellishment in classic rust, indigo, and gold on a white porcelain ground. Two sides feature vases filled with flowers and a butterfly. While the other two sides portray wisteria branches hanging above a delicate bamboo handrail. While unmarked this vessels are obviously of very superior quality. 

Each bottle individually measures approximately 5" wide x 5" deep x 11.5" high.

Both bottles are in excellent antique condition with no visible cracks, chips, surface scratches, crazing, or substantial gilt loss. See photos for details.
